Portsmouth v Bury Preview

17 April 2015

Read our preview of tomorrow's game against Portsmouth...

Tomorrow’s tie at Fratton Park is another crucial game for the Shakers as they look to overtake Wycombe and break into the automatic promotion spots.


After Tuesday night’s impressive victory over promotion rivals Shrewsbury Town, the Shakers are currently sitting fourth in Sky Bet League Two and are guaranteed a play-off spot.


Bury are going into the game in great form having won 10 of their last 12 fixtures and are unbeaten in their last 7 away from home.


Tomorrow’s game will be Gary Waddock's first home fixture as caretaker manager after the departure of Andy Awford. 


In the fixture at the JD Stadium back in October, the Shakers claimed all three points in an impressive 3-0 victory. Unfortunately, Bury have not tasted success in the away fixture since 1968.

The Gaffer looks to have a fully fit squad at his disposal.


As for Pompey, Jed Wallace (hamstring) is back in training after missing the Stevenage game on Tuesday night, while Ryan Taylor (groin) is a major doubt.
